Angry Uighurs defy Chinese police

New protests have flared in the western Chinese city of Urumqi, two days after more than 150 people died in clashes involving ethnic groups and police.

About 200 ethnic Uighurs, who are a Muslim minority, faced off against police to protest over the arrest of 1,434 people over Sunday’s unrest. Groups of ethnic Han Chinese have now armed themselves with batons and stones and have gathered in Urumqi.

It seems that resist ants in China comes from the most unexpected sides of the Chinese society!
